Pfaff Expresions 3.0. Using my zipper foot with 3 teeth. But can not get the needle to position to sew close to zipper


Um, not sure what presser foot you are using--there are several.

If it is the invisible zipper foot, there is a groove in the bottom of the presser foot that straddles one strip of zipper teeth which positions it close to the needle. Zipper foot #4 snaps to either side to enable the needle to be close to the zipper teeth. The Narrow Adjustable Zipper/Straight Stitch and the Non-Stick Zipper Feet are moveable left or right.

How can I attach a zipper foot to my unidentified machine?


Assuming you have the correct zipper foot attachment for your machine, you should be able to attach it like any other presser foot. On some machines, you may need to adjust the needle position to the right or left so the needle will not hit the presser foot when stitching.

The needle hits the base plate of the zipper foot, it works fine on the right side but not on the left, am I able to move the needle shaft across somehow


Depends on your machine. Some machines have the ability to move the needle right and left. Your owner's manual should show how to do that.

Bernina 930 change needle position


Look at the knob which creates the zig-zag stitch (1-4) at the top right of your 930. In the center of that is a silver knob that rotates right and left. That silver switch moves the needle position right and left.

I don't have that machine but my needle moves when I touch the needle sign and use the + or - to move the needle to the left or right. Presser foot and needle must both be up.

Move needle to the right


It doesn't look like you can change needle position on this machine. Even the zipper foot for this machine is made so the foot itself moves to the right or left rather than having to change the needle position.

Here's a copy of your manual.

Would you please advise how I put a zipper foot on my brother bm-3600, the needle will not align with the foot when I put the foot down! Thank you.


Did a google image search, this looks like a newish machine so I'd assume clip on feet?

Put the foot on the pressure plate, lower the foot on and align so it clicks into place.

Couldn't get an image of the foot but many zipper feet are designed to mount either left or right side of the foot so you can sew both edges of the zip in the same direction, ie pressure foot to left of the needle for one side, and to the right of the needle for the other side of the zip, you want to stitch in the same direction to avoid creeping.

Some machines you change the change the needle position to the left or right in order to get up close to the zipper foot.

Probably a manual would assist explaining this better, if you don't have one for the machine, I'd suggest that you obtain one.

Hi. Here's how to attached the zipper foot.

To Attach the Zipper Foot
1. Loosen the large screw at the left of the presser bar and remove presser foot (You do not need to remove the screw).
2. Hook the prongs of the Zipper Foot around the presser bar from the back, and tighten the presser-bar screw.
3. If the raised edge (zipper or cording) is to the right of the needle, adjust the Zipper Foot by loosening the thumb screw at the back of the foot and sliding foot to the left of the needle. If the raised edge is to the left, slide foot to right.
4. With presser foot down, check its position by lowering needle into side notch, making sure it just clears the foot.
5. Tighten thumb screw to lock foot into position.
When raised edge is placed to right -- adjust foot to left of needle.
When raised edge is placed to left -- adjust foot to right of needle.
